"The Speaker read a report from the Library concerning abuse %f privileges, such as removing books without charging, and outrageous mutila- tion of Library properly. It was fell that ap- parently public opinion had not been sufficiently strong to check these abuses. Other methods, such as publicity by means of the Heretics Board, the News, and Chapel announcement, were sug- gested. It was voted that Miss Holmes should see that the matter be put in the News. It was decided also that it be the opinion of the House that the occasion of infringement of Library Rules, i. e., 1. Books drawn from Library must be charged at Loan Desk. 2. Books reserved for class use will be loaned under a speeial time limit. Not more than two may be drawn at one time. 3. No borrower shall write in or mark a book belonging lo the Library, turn down leaves or in ami way deface same. should be consideed a dishonor and disgrace to the College Community and that the Academic Committee on Discipline .should inflict a very severe penalty on any one infringing these rules. "' JUSTICE BEGINS AT HOME. (From the "Advocate of Peace," Nov., 191C.) "At a time when the American people are going forth to promote justice among the rations every evidence of injustice at home arouses a fear for the future of the nation's purpose.... The Advo- cate of Peace has thus far watched the growing opposition to the teaching of the German language in our public schools without comment. But the persecution of the German language has howl. reached to the open persecution of officials, in- eluding a government official. Three reasons lead us now to speak: one, that the opposition to the teaching of German in our educational institutions is without foundation in reason; two, that it is due to a peculiarly American mental strabismus; and, three, that the criticism in this matter of the LJnited States Commissioner of Education is wholly unjust Of course, the public schools should be wholly consonant with established American ideals. But there is no more relation between a familiarity with the German language and disloyalty than there is hetwen ignorance and innocence. It should be possible for any student to elect any modern language including German, he that in high school. college, or university. To deny the value of the German language is to deceive one's self into be- lieving that there is no value in German art. litera- ture, or science. To prescribe the study of the lan- guage of any people is to return to the old unholy days of the index- ejrpurgatorius, and the burning of the hooks. A wilfully enforced ignorance is an autocratic perversion of liberty. Tf we as a prac- tical people ever needed to know the German lan- guage it is now... All the great writers of the older Germany, wrote for all time, and it is in- conceivable that the writers of the new Germany will have nothing to contribute to our enrichment. It is not becoming as we fare forth seeking for deeper and richer breaths of freedom and de- mocracy, that we should stifle our own minds in any manner whatsoever. (Continued on page J, column 3) With the termination of the war, the tremendous task of Reconstruction in i ranee and Belgium looms larger than ever and the need for trained workers becomes more imperative. To help in meeting this need Wellesley women, past anil present, expect to send seven new members the latter part of this month to join their Unit already in France. All of the seven are experienced soda] workers, who can speak French and drive a motor car. ••• One of the members, chosen for the first group of Wellesley workers, who had to withdraw on account of a brother in the service, is Alice Walmsley, 190(5, of Chicago. The ruling regard- ing brothers having been lifted, she is now avail- able. Boston knew her at Denison House and later as manager of Simmons College dormitories. She was also a social visitor for the Dennison Manufacturing Company in Framingham. At one time she was manager of the Wellesley Inn, and later of the Y. M. C. A. restaurant in Manila, P. I. The others are Elizabeth Bass, 1903, of Wilton. Me., recently Dean of Women at Colby College, who has been an instructor and director of Physical Training for women both at Colby and at the University of Wisconsin. Calisthenics for the young factory girls of France is proving so val- uable and so popular that trained leaders are a necessity. The horticulturist of the group is Jean Cross, 1909, Associate Curator of elementary in- struction at the Botanic Garden, Brooklyn, N. Y. Miss Cross formerly lived in Cambridge, Mass.. and in connection with her social training did considerable work in supervising home, school and war gardens. Mary Rogers, 1913, of Ashe- ville, N. C. trained in social work in Boston and ors-anized the Associated Charities of Asheville. For five years she has been working amon? the Mountain Whites of North Carolina, sometimes walking twelve miles in a heavy snowstorm, or taking a dav's trip on horseback to reach their cabin homes, there to help them with hand loom weaving basket making and other handicrafts. Another member, Marion Webster, 1909, of North Attleboro. Mass., has done social work in Porto Rico as well as at home, has had experience as a nurse's aid and some training as a masseur, and is at present wnrkin? with convalescent sol- diers suffering from shell shock.

Welleslev was effectively represented in this vanmiard of mercv which set to work trans- porting the twelve "walking eases" to Xatiey. and ordering supplies for the wounded. Tracv L'Fnfle was famous when in college for ber dramatic ability. She took prominent parts in manv Barn plavs. After ber graduation she plaved minor parts in several larn-e productions for a vear and a half, and then joined an F.n- tert-'inment Canteen for work in France. Of this work she tells verv vividlv in a letter ptrhllshed in the October 17 issue of the Nf.ws. t'liday afternoon, November 22, in room 24, Dr. Harriet Rice, of the elo of ho hae verj Ij returned from Pri i c -led some of il xperiences she has bad .lining her three years of hospital service abroad. particularly of her work at Poitiers in the hospital, formerly an old Episcopalian mai re both German and French wounded were cared For. The German arrogance and lack of consideration were shown by the German wounded in their scant gratitude for the excellent care given them by their captors. One German officer said assuredly thai France a in! England could never conquer Germany, and as for America, she couldn't bring an army across the ocean if she had one to bring, for the German U- boats would not allow it. Another young Ger- man soldier insisted that his army was only forty kilometers from Paris, while in reality it was more nearly four hundred kilometers away. Even the le9s arrogant Germans showed that they had been cruelly misguided by this sort of propaganda. Dr. Piice then told of wounded French poilus, their gaiety, patience and "will to conquer." The ven- triloquist who amused the whole ward with bis tricks, and the soldier who could whistle the bugle calls lived for us. We caught a glimpse of the "depth of the vivid French nature" in the answer of the poilu who had lost his sight and who, when asked how he was doing, said, "It is always mid- night now," then added hastily, "but not in my soul!" The wounded ar"e brought in from the front by train loads, and although everything possible is done for the men's comfort, the journey is very exhausting. Women minister as best they may to the men at various stations, giving them chocolate and cof- fee. The hospital is warned of the coming influx of wounded some hours before the trains arrive. Ambulances are sent to the station and the wound- ed rushed to the hospital; here the serious cases are sent immediately to the operating room, but the less serious cases are bathed and put to bed to recover from the journey and to wait for their turn to come under the surgeon's hands. Dr. Rice then gave her impression of our sol- diers in France, their strength, order, and intensity of purpose, which has justified the world's hope. She ended by saying that now the weary waiting is over, and now that Germany has herself fallen into the socialistic pit she digged for Russia, it is time, more than ever, to hold fast to the eter- nal verities, which were as true before the war as now, so that humanity may be a little freer, a little higher, and so that the abundant, eternal life of God may lead us onward.

The enforcement of the new rule that one serious error shall constitute probation has brought much dissatisfaction in the cpllege. "The Senate is try- ing to put something over on us," more than one student has been heard to say. There is an under- current of feeling that the Senate is something apart from the student body and is not affected by the wishes of the students. Few people realize that in the new system of government disciplinary powers have been dele- gated to the Senate. Special cases come before the Senate; the Error Card is the standardization by the Senate of penalties for cases which occur too commonly to be called special. Acting as a disci- plinary body, the Senate passed the measure which is occasioning so much comment. It was well known that carelessness prevailed. The fact that nothing short of three serious errors entailed punishment made probation seem a far-off thing. The Senate, doing what it thought best for the college, changed the rule and to the majority of students perhaps the ruling seemed too strict. With the discussion of the punishment has come another issue. In the last meeting of the House of Representatives the question arose — is this mea- sure a disciplinary measure or is it a law? Es- sentially a disciplinary measure in its origin, it has come to apply to all and hence might be called a law. This question will be debated at the next meeting of the House, but, be it judged a legisla- tive or disciplinary measure, the outcome will be satisfactory to the student body. And in order that this be accomplished it is essential that each girl have a clear understanding of the whole mat- ter, The Senate and the House must know the feeling back of them. Suggestion blanks are wait- ing to be filled out. Each Senate member, every Representative is anxious to know the opinions and reasons of others. The Senate is not working as the Senate alone. It is working as a representative body. If it fails to work as such it is the fault of the students. . It is a time for patience, for a solution of the problem cannot be reached in a moment. College Government is being tested. The News feels, how- ever, that College Government will live up to its name; what the college wants, it will have. The Senate is working for this end. In this week's issue of the News, there appears an article under the head of Justice Begins at Borne, a defense of the United States Commis- sioner of Education in his plea for the study of German in the schools and colleges of America. This article, taken from the November Advocate of Peace, so ably sets forth the arguments for its cause that we need say little in support of them. But it is very timely to point out to Wel- lesley students the fact that the German Depart- ment at Wellesley is in danger of virtual boycott, and that, if this occurs, Wellesley must of neces- sity lose a certain amount of prestige as a broad- ly and practically cultural college. Four hundred and seventy-three new freshmen have been enrolled for the year 1918-1919. Of this number four hundred and thirteen have met the modern language requirement by electing French, and only twenty-nine have elected Ger- man. The News in no way wishes to underestU mate the great value of French at the present time, nor the good judgment of those who have elected it, but merely aims to reveal the danger that menaces the study of German here at Wel- lesley. As the Advocate of Peace says "there is no more relation between a familiarity with the German language and disloyalty than there is between ignorance and innocence." If Wellesley students do not adopt a less "ignorant" attitude towards the present value of the German language in its past fruition and its promise of future creation in a Germany new-born, we may look forward to a time, not very long distant when there will be no German Department at Wellesley. Such an outcome of the present feeling would mean a loss in breadth of scope of our curriculum, and no less a loss of that splendid tradition of scholarship which the German Department has maintained since the days of Fraulein Wencke- bach.

Americans, by inheritance and education non- militaristic, took two and a half years to reach a decision to enter the war. Some say that our mature deliberations gave to our decision a moral impressiveness that it could not otherwise have had. Certain it was that after two and a half years, as the war progressed and spread, the vast majority of Americans became convinced that the challenge of August 4, 1914., was meant for us too. Even to some who, in 1914, had been pacifists and conscientious objectors, it appeared clear that not merely the political integrity of the warring nations, but the future of civilization itself, was at stake and that, unless we took arms and went out to kill certain human beings, the very atmos- phere in which alone the ideals of the pacifist and the conscientious objector can be generated and developed, would be destroyed. More precious even than human life was this civilization we dared not lose. Imperfect it certainly was, inex- pressive of men's best thought and highest desire: but inestimably precious. It had been purchased by many a battle and many a martyrdom; by the slow inarticulate struggle of dumb peoples up- reaching to liberty, by the travail of every human soul that through history had set himself, without counting the cost, behind ideas of justice and freedom. Because this slowly-wrought structure that embodies men's still dim perception of ulti- mate social order seemed in danger of destruc- tion, some of the most benevolent and humani- tarian of men took up arms, took upon them- selves what in 1914 would have seemed crime. Some of us thoughtlessly, some of us with tre- mendous moral effort, seized swords and went forth. The ghastly thing is done. That is, the sword- work and the gas-bomb-min-work is done. But unless we who have supported this war by any effort that has helped to make it possible redeem ourselves by thought and action now, we stand condemned as mere spoliators. We have devas- tated in the name of civilization and so far we have done little more. The military victory was to vindicate a moral order. The military victory has been achieved and the way is now open for mankind — our enemies too — to grasp that other victory. If we do not grasp it, we are guilty of abominable crimes to the past and the future. Within a fortnight our delegates go abroad to a peace conference, a conference that will estab- lish a regime under which the world will strive to recover from its present desolation and carry on. What do we want the peace conference to set up for us? The old regime that bequeathed the war to us? Or a new? If a new, what new? "League of nations, disarmament, freedom of the seas, self-government for all nationalities de- siring it," we blithely reply when people ask us what we want the conference to secure. But do , we know that there are many definitions of a league of nations? That almost insuperable ob- stacles exist to the realization of any of them? Do we know that there are nations and indi- viduals who have no faith in any league and others who do not wish such leagues? Do we know that we are in danger of not getting any sort of league to replace the dangerous and ef- fectually obsolete balance of power as a means of keeping order among nations? Do We know that there are great obstacles in the way of dis- armament? Do we know what they are and what we should do to meet them? Do we know that after a war to end war we may actually see an increase of armaments in this country in the near future? Do we know that the selfishness of nations and of individuals jeopardizes a just re- organization of trade among the countries of the world? Have we any misgivings about the nature of the democracies springing up over night among the ruins of central Europe? Are we sure we can regard our own democracy complacently as a model to which to direct the attention of aspir- ing republics? Do we know that upon the crisis of the Marne succeeds the more decisive crisis of Versailles? We have a moral "obligation to be intelligent." If we do not know clearly what we want the peace delegates to strive for, and if we do not get behind our convictions with the soldier's fervor and courage in the next months, we are guilty of having indulged in war for its own bloody sake and not for the sake of an idealism that used it as a desperate means toward the gracious end of justice and peace. Amy Kelly. II. Peace. How shall we receive peace ? How can we make our joy at the cessation of warfare become a source of constructive activity in shaping the new era? We hope for a finer civilization, a deeper unity, a keener, more faithful allegiance to honor, truth and right. We know that it ia only through co- operation of the many that righteousness can pre- vail in a State. What is the patriotic duty of each of us? One question we must ask ourselves, a question that seems intensely egotistical but is a really humble one: — Am I deserving of the sacrifices the allied armies have made for me, — a representative citizen? The allied cause has been the protection of the defenseless, the upholding of justice and liberty. Are we worthy of this gift of freedom? Can we make ourselves more worthy? The individual conscience must answer that ques- tion and tell us wherein we fail and what we need to do to amend. We must work as never before. As students we must slough off idleness, apathy, shiftlessness, and we must study with the con- centration and the energy that will give us trained minds to be of vital service to society. We must possess the power of acute self-discipline, moral and intellectual, and we must not forget the schol- ars' quest of "high-erected thoughts." THE WE I. LESLEY COLLEGE NEWS Next.

We should, all of us, be thinking how the devo- tion, the heroism, the energy of these returning men can be set to work for the Republic. We should be planning how we can work shoulder to shoulder with them and with others at the great task of developing all the resources of our nation, especially those potential springs of the character and ideals of our people. To suggest one of many books of the sort, Mr. Fulton's "National Ideals and Problems" (Macmillah) is a collection of papers by various writers, all deeply concerned with the problems of right thinking and right conduct in relation to the state. We can best show that we are grateful for our preservation by becoming worthy of it. We can give our soldiers that most valuable of welcomes, gratitude based upon sympathetic understanding. We can help to establish a lasting and honorable peace by quiet devotion to our immediate duty, the duty of becoming intelligent, moral citizens. M. H. Shackfoiuj, '96. III. A Vigorous Protest. That many of the smaller library rules are fre- quently infringed is known, and, it is to be re- gretted, accepted as inevitable by the college at large. Lax as our standards seem to be, how- ever, we were totally unprepared for tin: bare facts when we were shown to what extent such lawlessness could be carried. It seemed impossible that books — library books — could be brutally de- faced in a place like Wellesley. That they should be deliberately stolen is almost beyond conjecture. The college has undergone a rough and unexpected awakening. We know now that these things do occur and, furthermore, that those who are guilty of them are from our own number. We realize with Miss Roberts that the funda- mental reason for such utter disregard of the value of things is due to a lack of home training which the college is powerless to supply. But it is within our power to stir up public opinion in the matter. The attitude of every student towards such flagrant dishonor as has been manifested here should be such as to render it impossible for such a thing to occur again. It is an outrage — a slur on the good name of our college. We must not, we will not stand for it. The culprit whoever she is, cannot but realize that not only has she compromised her own standards of "playing the game," but she is jeopardizing the standards of others like her, whose principles are not of the sort that can bear strain. This is only too probable a result. It is exactly what will happen, unless we take matters into our own hands, to the end that not only will no one of us dare to commit further His] [aciiDHLimiri] laiimiroxanTil larmiiiiiiapffl] larjrjjrmiiJLrJTBl JIh Meyer Jonasson & Co.

The upperclassman who could condone in a fresh- man the carrying home "under her coat" of re- serve hooks, would not be countenanced if public opinion were sufficiently aroused against this prac- tice. Think what a responsibility lies in creating public sentiment! It is up to us — to every mem- ber of this community. Else why be a citizen? Emily Tyler Holmes, '20. IV. Winsome Warblings. "Isn't the new rule about pro just terrible?" says the Winsome Wellesleyite to her friends. But she says nothing about it to her representatives. It never comes to the ears of her House President as anything but an echo. She never fills out a suggestion slip for the executive committee of the Senate. All she does is murmur, and grumble, and mutter, and say she "never wanted the old rule anyhow," when she gets "on pro." The W. W. sees a lot of things, too. She told me the other day she saw a freshman take a reserve book from the library. She told me and she told her room- mate and a few choice spirits on her corridor and the president of her society, and the girl she sits next to in French class. And then a girl whis- pered to me that she knew a girl who knew a girl who heard a girl say she saw a girl take two volumes of the Encyclopedia Brittanica home with her. "Isn't that awful?" The W. W. will see everyone who eats dinner at the Touraine after six o'clock. But she won't "tell on you." She won't fill out a suggestion blank and it will never reach the House of Rep- resentatives, but it will be gossiped about all over college. The fact that such things are going on argues inefficient student government,— that's what the W. W. says.— says it to every unofficial in the community and yet "nothing ever gets fixed in this college." •13. V. 1918 Rises From the Grave.

One of the members who had been working at another Base Hospital has written describing the Recreation Hut at Base Hospital 22, near Bor- deaux, which is under the management of five of the Unit. "Mary Whiting is head of the Hut, overseeing everything, doing all the buying, which means stoves, flowers, tacks, chintz, paint, wigs, cement, shaving brushes and axes. After the war she will be able to qualify as French buyer for a great department store. Ada Davis awakened us this morning as she started for the Commissary's, de- manding money to pay for the supplies for the Canteen. She also has charge of the housekeeping and of delivering flowers and fruit to the wards. Thanks to our Wellesley fund we can give little surprises now and then. One Sunday it was tiny bunches of violets for the hundred patients in the surgical ward. "Agnes Gilson has charge of the construction work, materially and artistically; one minute with paint brush in hand she is encouraging one of the patients who is busy with the woodwork and the next she is discussing the comic opera to be put on next Saturday. "I wish I had the concentration to tell the won- derful things that the girls have done in one short month, in transforming an unattractive, badly built building into a very cheery semblance of home. Concentration is necessary since there is no place in the Hut that is not youth infested from early morning till late at night. Just now three of the boys are putting up a beaver board ceiling in the next room and I expect them to fall through at any letter. In between thoughts some one demands a necessary something, so no con- secutive ideas are possible. Since the last period I have assured an artillery man that I would cable home to his mother that he wasn't really killed as reported but that he is quite happy and on the road to recovery, I have searched in my mind for the few Magyar words that I once knew, to cheer up a lonesome native of Hungary, and have told where many things and people are.

The Vassar Miscellany Monthly for November offers a splendid opportunity for comparison with the Wellesley Magazine. Their arrangement of material is interesting. The editorials, grouped at the beginning, embrace a very much wider scope than do ours. A plea for sleep and discussion of the college war policy could he relegated by us to the News. It is questionable whether their presence in a literary magazine can be justified by the use of quota- tions from the poets, or the most vivid metaphores. The body of verse, story and essay follows, as with us. A recollection of the tragic experience of Nurse Cavell three years ago, serves as the only number under the War Department. There then follows the rather unusual group of Sum- mer Activities, under which there are accounts of interesting and typical work which various stu- dents have engaged in during their vacation. Their department of book and play reviews ■ may well stimulate Wellesley In a revival and improvement nf our department. For the most part the appre- ciations are short and pithy, told with the fresh- ness and vigor we look for from college women, but indicating in addition, a real sense of values. There is an unusual number of verse contri- butions. In subject matter they are simple and for that reason, perhaps, strike a more genuine note. But for the most part, it is in their essay material that one notices a more decided supe- riority to Wellesley work. Here are at least at- tempts at serious literary work. One finds the form of the Letters on Browning a great cheek to the value of the inherent ideas. Pike's Peak has some excellent descriptive touches, and creates a very real atmosphere. The stories are very like ours, perhaps a bit more dramatically executed. Veriat shows an artistic restraint, while yet gripping in its emotional appeal. Outside of this one story, Veriat, the strictly literary body of material makes no mention of the war. This is interesting, perhaps, in view of the fact that our competition material was so largely concerned with various aspects of war experience. J ustice Begins at Home. (Continued from page 1, column 1) But to eliminate German from our schools would mean to handicap our commercial enterprises, many of which will succeed or fall in proportion as a working knowledge of the German language is known or not known. The work of German intel- ligence will not cease at the close of this war, and we shall need to translate that work into our lan- guage for the help of our enterprises. Where are our translators to come from if we banish the language from our schools? If wo were to elim- inate all German books from our colleges and libraries, American science would be by that much the poorer. We are in a position to inform our readers that this opposition is purely American. There has been no such opposition in England . . . The Secre- tary of State for the United Kingdom recently wrote to our Ambassador in England: "Ignorance of the mental attitude and aspirations of the Ger- man people... prevented due preparation and hampered our efforts after the war had begun; it still darkens our counsels." .... In France, the Minister of Public Instruction has invited the heads of educational institutions to exert their in- fluence with the families to have their children enroll with the German course.... The position among the eulightened of France is that France cannot afford to be ignorant of German. . . Opposi- tion to elective courses in the German. language is peculiarly and unfortunately American. This type of unwisdom among a large propor- tion of our public opinion is now expressing itself here and there in opposition to our United States Commissioner of Education, who has been accused of saying in a public address in Ohio that the anti-German language crusade is ''patriotic hy- steria.' Pie denies the charge, and we believe him. The injustice of tnis opposition lies in the fact that the Commissioner has expressed no news relative to the teaching of German except, we feel sure, as he in his official capacity has been asked .. . His views are substantially the same as those set forth in this editorial, and represent, we believe, the col- lective judgment of the staff of the Bureau of Edu- cation and all dispassionate lovers of America. RADCLIFFE SENDS A SECOND REPRESEN- TATIVE TO THE UNIT IN FRANCE. The second Radcliffe member, sent by Radcliffe College with the Wellesley group, is Elizabeth Freeman, 1909, of Wollaston, Mass., who worked for eleven years for the Boston Y. M. C. U. in their country week work, and who has done district nursing in Quincy, Mass., and served in the hospital of that city. The members of the Unit already in France have proved themselves good soldiers under the orders of the Red Cross. Adaptability and amiability are cardinal virtues under unusual or difficult liv- ing conditions. These qualities have been ascribed to the Wellesley women by their superior officers. Spirit of France and Alsace Interpreted. (Continued from page 1, column 3) also the armament, overwhelmingly larger than the French. The Germans believed that by crossing the northern frontier they could surprise and crush France in a few weeks, and then turn to Russia before that country had had an opportunity to mobilize. After August", 1914, that month of an- guish, the battle of the Marne stands out as a- triumph of the spirit of patriotism, as a veritable miracle. During this time the industrial situation had been changing. Germany, in her first victorious march, had taken the richest part of France— that part which, though but six per cent of the terri- tory, yet paid one-quarter of the taxes of the re- public. The problem facing the administration was that of making up the loss. To do this, the country was divided into fifteen districts, each under a committee of men organizing new indus- tries, new mines, new factories. To work these plans it was at first necessary to call back many of the men from the front. Later, the women took hold and relieved large numbers of the soldiers. Thus in January, 1916, of 100 workers, 50 were civilians, 40 were mobilized men and 10' were wo- men, while in July of the same year, 50 were civilians, 24 were mobilized men and" 2ti were wo- men. This helped the situation greattV, the in- crease in women workers corresponding directly to the increased production of arms and munitions. After the battle of the Marne, Mile, de Taillan- dier continued, the lines practically followed the Aisne. The problem, of course, was to break the German front. Yet each successive offensive seemed to lead only to bloodshed. After a time, France ceased to consider the possibility of an end. She simply stopped thinking. Yet during all this time, when it did not seem possible to conceive of victory, she never lost faith. Then in 1917 came the hope of American aid, lighting the darkness. She knew the end was near. Mile. -Noetenger, an Alsatian herself, then spoke, describing the intense love the Alsatians have for France. "Nationality is a spirit, not a matter of blood and language," she said, "and in this no country has been more French, more true to French traditions and spirit and ideals, than Alsace." She came to full life and development in freedom and law only when under France, while France was not herself until Alsace completed the unity of the country. It is difficult for Americans to realize how the little province felt when, after 20O years of such intimate unity, she was chained to the imperial throne of Prussia. Alsace has never ceased to manifest her feelings thru every means within her power; through dep- uties, her artists, her women and, since the war, through her heroic young men. Every year reg- ularly a committee of deputes protestateurs was sent to the Reichstag, pleading that the province be returned to France, until finally she lost hope and resolved that all she could do was refuse to be German, if she could not be French. Artists and cartoonists resisted with French wit the Ger- man oppression. The women of Alsace taught their children the love of France, even if they could not teach them the language. No German was ever admitted into an Alsatian home. So in- tense was their feeling that a German said in the Reichstag that "the Alsatians would all have been Germans were it not for the diabolical women!" Most indicative of the sentiment of the people is the stand that the young men took in the war. 30,000 of them escaped across the border into the French army, even though they knew that their families would probably be persecuted. Some were forced into the German army before they could get away. Mile. Noetenger told of one lad who lost his life because he refused to lire on the French army. Dying, he sent a message lo his father: "I have kept my promise'. Not one drop "t French blood has stained my hands." "This," said Mile. Noetenger, "is very typical Alsatian spirit."

They were not meant for the restricted community life; And getting A's is merely a matter of drag.

Suggestion seems to be all that is necessary to get anything done, from our breakfast dishes to office desks. (You will notice that we are rather fond of the American soldier in general, and of our own detail in particular. They are the boys we knew at home, jolly and full of clever fun, but they are bigger, more worthy, less selfish than those who have not been over here.) "The Hut is one-storied, of tar paper and wood, and looks quite uninviting from without. Our auditorium is perhaps thirty feet wide by seventy- five feet long. The boys have stained it brown even to the rafters, the benches and the tables. Agnes has had it brightened by chintz curtains at the windows, by the gay posters on the wall and by a few blue and red tables scattered among the chairs. There are always flowers and the boys do like them, even though they would not have told you so before the war. In one corner is our Library, a favorite spot, and our Bulletin Board that we try to change every day or two, adding a new cartoon or poem. "The decoration that we are fondest of is our Wellesley banner, which we have placed on the wall back of the stage. During the day it lights up the whole room and at night with the footlights on, the letters stand out with a clearness that calls distinctly to us all to do our best for our college across the sea. "We have become so popular as a hospital that we now run two movie shows a night, quite like a regular performance, with piano music to fol- low up each sentimental or tragic bit, and long and loud applause. There is an entertainment of some sort every evening; sometimes imported talent from the Y. M. C. A., singers or lecturers, elaborate shows gotten up in near-by camps, vaudeville stunts by our own clientele, or nights when we just sing everything we can think of. "Advancing to the kitchen, we find the kitchen police are just ready to furnish the patients who happen to be in the hall with hot cocoa, or if the weather permits, with lemonade, to make them happier until mess time. "The storeroom is insatiable — no sooner is it filled with razor blades and nuts, cigars and shav- ing soap, candy and cigarettes, tooth brushes, magazines and comfort kits, than the many cal- lers empty it and we have to start all over again. There is no busier job than attempting to keep a stock on hand. "At the Home Service office one may obtain relief from all woes be they sentimental, business or epistolary. It goes like this: 'I want my mail.' 'Why doesn't my wife get her allowance?' 'Where is Jones of Battery B?' 'I left my watch at the evacuation hospital.' 'How do I take out my citizen papers?' All very different and. all very interesting. "Having looked into the barber shop we will wander up through the Auditorium, stopping to talk a bit or to oversee a game of cards or tid- dledy winks and then go down the corridor into the green-room to be, which at present is really only a carpenter shop. Marvelous things come out of it to make our Hut more convenient and homelike. In the cupboard at one side you will find musical instruments, a gramophone and records, wigs, grease paint, and other stage prop- erties of all sorts. "The convoys of wounded have a habit of ar- riving at the Hospital during the hours of the night. Then, by turn two of us arise, dress warm- ly and serve coffee and cigarettes to the men who are brought in by the hospital trains and also to the stretcher bearers and the members of the Unit who work so unceasingly for the sick. Rainy nights the wounded are brought into the Hut to wait for their turn in the dressing-room and there one has a chance to talk with them and learn of what is happening at the front. After the last coffee is given out there is delicious food down at the Cookhouse. One cannot appreciate hot soup fully until it is handed to one at the dreary hour of four A. M. The cooks pamper the Red Cross girls at such times with hot toast and butter. "Everyone has been so kind and co-operative that we have not felt at all strange or out of place. Although our Unit has been here only a short time we have really become a part of the staff of Base Hospital No. 22, and we are anxious to do all that is possible to make pur Hut work as efficient as the medical work of the Unit with which we are affiliated."

"Paper is the most generally used of all articles except food, and probably the most shamefully wasted," says the "Mother's Magazine." The ma- terials used in making paper, pulp, sulphur, bleach, etc., are being used for war industries. The gov- ernment is using many cardboard boxes, index- cards, heavy wrapping paper, and is taking prac- tically the entire output of plaster-board mills to construct camps and hospitals. Waste paper can be used over again to make all sorts of paper, card- board, and chipboard from which shipping con- tainers are made. Rags are necessary to paper- making too, and use will always be found for old rubber, leather, etc. DO NOT WASTE A SCRAP OF PAPER. DO NOT USE ANY PAPER UNLESS IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Here are seven reasons why you should be economical in using paper. 1. The Governments requirements for all kinds of paper are increasing rapidly and must be sup- plied. 2. Paper making requires a large amount of fuel which is essential for war purposes. A pound of paper wasted represents from one to three pounds of coal wasted. 3. Paper contains valuable chemicals necessary for war purposes. Economy in the use of paper will release a large quantity of these materials for making ammunition or poisonous gas. 4. Paper making requires labor and capital, both of which are needed in war service. '5. Paper making requires transportation space. Economy in the use of paper will release thou- sands of freight cars for war purposes. 0. Greater care in the purchase and use of pa- per will save money. Your savings will help fin- ance the war. 7. Strictest economy in the use of paper will prevent a shortage. THE WELLESLEY UNIT— IN CHINA. Many members of the college do riot know that Wellesley has a unit in China, nor that it had been at work a year and a half before that other unit sailed for France. It is Wellesley's Y. W. C. A. in Peking, which was organized in October, 191fi, under the leadership of Theresa Severin, '09. Miss Severin is coming to Wellesley next week to tell of the unit in China. On Sunday evening, December 1, she speaks on China's Two Great Walls and at Christian Association meeting the following Wednesday mi Wellesley in Peking. Miss Severin is supported by Hie Wellesley alumnte while her assistant, (Catherine Williams, '11, is a secretary supported by the undergraduate body. A large audience is expected since this is an op- portunity to hear of work so essentially Welles- ley's own. MUSIC HOURS CHANGED. Along with the change of i: I ion of quiet hours, the House of Representatives voted at its meeting of November 21 to change the noon music hour also. Quiet hour will end at 12 noon and begin again at 1.30 p. m., whereas the noon music hour shall extend from 12 noon to 1 p. m. The change of quiet hour was necessitated by the new sched- ule according to which lunch is served at 12 in- stead of at 12.30 as was formerly the case. CHRISTMAS CAROLS FROM THE SONG BOOK. Owing to the excessive cost of printing it has been found impracticable to print a fresh edition of this book. There are however a few copies left for sale at the Book Store. In their tasteful covers these make very charming gifts for Christ- mas. The price is thirty cents over the counter; or if sent by mail in a stout envelope securely packed, thirty-five cents. Address the Welles- ley College Book Store. There is a slight reduc- tion in price if twenty-five or more copies arc ordered at once. LETTERS FROM WELLESLEY WAR WORKERS. Any readers of the News who receive letters from Wellesley women engaged in any form of war work overseas would do the college a service by sending the letters, or such parts of them as might be suited for publication, to Elizabeth W. Man- waring, Wellesley College. Since many of the workers have been required not to write anything which should be published, and since all of them are s_o busy that they cannot write many long letters, it is specially desirable to make use of all that are available, for the College and for outside pub- lications. FREEDOM. On Sunday morning, November 24, Mr. Richard Roberts of Pilgrim Church, Brooklyn. N. Y., based his sermon on the short sentence, "The Truth Shall Make You Free." "Freedom, defined," he said, "is the right to he ourselves; to live out the logic of our convictions in our own way." To be imposed on the world, liberty must be balanced by disci- pline, not by law. external control, or public opin- ion, but by authority within. The limiting prin- ciple of this inner conscience is "to love God, and love thy neighbor." With this relationship, man becomes independent of things. Many men possess the liberating love, who arc not conscious of it; others must ask for it, and make room for it in their hearts. It is a gift to be accepted — this freedom-giving truth on which the liberty of the world depends.

Mr. Louis Calvert, a well known English actor, is to talk on his art in Billings Hall Monday even- ing, December 2, at 8.00 o'clock. Mr. Calvert's first appearance in America was at the New Theatre, New York, where he played the following parts: the Grand Duke in the "Cot- tage in the Air; John Anthony, in Strife; Sir Peter Teazle in The School for Scandal; Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night; Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor; Dr. Tuttner in Old Heidelburg. and Sir Pitt Crawley in Vanity Fair. He was twice, a member of Henry Irvlng's Company at the Lyceum Theatre. He has played many great Shakespearean roles, and he has created many parts in Shaw's plays; John Broadbent in John Bull's Other Island, and the Waiter in You Never Can Tell, Andrew Under- shaft in Major Barbara. He has recently published an admirable book on The Problems of the Actor. Indeed, it was this book that suggested the idea of asking him to come to the college to address the students. In the introduction to this book Mr. Clayton Hamilton says: "The art of acting can be taught only by an actor; but very few actors have been able, or even willing to convey their knowledge of the art beyond the barrier of the footlights." "Mr. Cal- vert knows whereof he speaks. For forty years he has been an actor; for nearly thirty years he has been a stage director; and during these ac- cumulated decades very few of the tricks of his trade have escaped his observation." The tickets for the lecture are twenty-five cents and seats ai'e to be reserved for the faculty only. They will first be offered for sale to the students of the Department of Reading and Speaking.
